I'm ok with this, even though I was hoping for Iggy and getting him a cup.

Really like this signing pending the money. Still a spot on the RW and I hope they don't give Pulju the keys straight away.

One year is perfect too, dollar value doesn't matter.

Roster is probably set, but you never know. Maybe if he's without a deal come camp we invite him to try out.

Love this. A lot. Can we get Jagr too?

Good veteran to lead by example, but I am hoping he can be kinda like Oates with faceoffs and penalty killing. Teach the young guys. Nuge included.

Smart signing. Curious about the dollars though.

I like this move, this is the value depth type of signing we will need going forward (Assuming this is around 1.5mil or less. He can play all positions and take draws which PC and TM value. Provides some cover for our young wingers. And he's skilled and has put up good numbers in the past. Can't see him being worse than 16/17 Pouliot. It's low risk so if he doesn't work out it's no big deal.

Wouldn't mind seeing another veteran or 2 on this type of deal!

Between this and getting McDavid locked up for max years Chiarelli is having a good week.

Huge upgrade over Pouliot. I guess Nuge is going to be a winger now?

I don't know that I really cared who it was, but I wanted at least one vet winger signed. Wouldn't be against another as well.

Very versatile playing both wings, pk and pp as well as 52% on 144 draws.

I love it on (3) reasons.

-1 year deal,
-Finish mentor for Puljujarvi
-Versatility can play LW/C/RW cause we all know McLellan loves to interchange his lines

I mistakenly thought JJ was a center. They still need another center in case Leon plays on the wing IMO.

Thanks Speedy!
These are the winger additions we need to carry the play more. Moving in the right direction!

Sweeeet, wanted Jagr but I like Jokinen as well. Good mentor for JP as well.

Bit of a down year but unlucky in every stat category (shooting down 5%, IPP is a career low, PDOP was 96.8 and a career low, on ice shooting % dropped 5%)

Versatile winger, can play all three forward positions and can take key draws in any situation. Good PKer, definitely has enough skill to give some offence. Extremely good at shootouts as well.

He's an excellent faceoff taker, but likely a little small to be a full time center.

More depth, a Finnish mentor for Pizza party, reliable, major upgrade on Pouliot, cheap, veteran
